The harvest season conjures countless memories—the crunch of fallen leaves, the smell of pumpkin pie, and the melodious sound of a scarecrow belting out the blues. Summon seasonal feelings with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $30 for Do-It-All passes for four (up to a $63.80 value)
- $15 for Do-It-All passes for two (up to a $31.90 value)
Do-It-All passes grant access to the indoor train display and kids' play area, among other attractions. From Saturday, September 21, through Thursday, October 31, a Halloween-themed playground springs up in the form of Jack O'Lantern Junction. There, visitors can navigate a maze filled with kid-friendly ghosts and trick-or-treating, grab mini pumpkins at the indoor patch, or hop aboard two train rides outfitted with spooky decorations for the fall season.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Train hobbyist Don Oeters founded EnterTrainment Junction in 2008 to showcase railroading in an educational and amusing way. Two years later, his 80,000-square-foot facility was voted Ohio's Best Family Entertainment Center of 2010.
At the centerpiece, a 25,000-square-foot indoor model train display dazzles visitors with 90 G-scale trains and 2 miles of track winding through handcrafted landscapes, including an 11-foot waterfall, thousands of trees, and scenes documenting railroad's early, middle, and modern periods. Each train car is the size of a loaf of bread, making it easier for groups to see it or break it into communal pieces, and Oeters and his staff continually tweak the locomotive's surroundings by adding seasonal touches and installing minor or major updates. Historical train artifacts, educational videos, and interactive exhibits await amblers in the railroad museum, and the Imagination Junction kids' area entertains youngsters with train-themed play structures, hand-cranked and electronic locomotive rides, and a section dedicated to Thomas the Tank Engine, the first train to successfully learn sign language.
